Solar Energy: “We’re trying to lay a foundation for a new economy…We are investing not in digging more oil wells but in building more wind farms, investing in solar energy….We are going to have an economy that [is] not based on a bubble.” (Media Teleconference, 6/8/09)

This Tuesday, Joe Biden will be traveling to a solar panel manufacturer near Toledo, Ohio to put his money where his mouth is. Willard & Kelsey Solar Group just received $10 Million from the Economic Stimulus Plan to create up to 3,500 new jobs making thin photo-voltaic cells for residential and commercial use.  VP Biden will tour the facility at 10 AM and hold a middle class task force meeting titled “Promoting American Manufacturing in the 21st Century” afterwards. He’ll discuss the state of the manufacturing industry, how the administration is supporting manufacturing communities presently and what they have planned for the future.

    But solar panels are an amazingly inefficient energy production system. Seems odd. The more prudent approach (although one that doesn’t have nearly as much “DO SOMETHING NOW!!!” sexiness) would be to invest several billion dollars in emerging technologies (nanotechnology and smart materials, mostly) to make solar panels actually viable. Ditto for a real alternate energy source. But that’s a multi-year process; much faster to throw money at a technology that isn’t ready for prime time. *sigh*
